Basic Psycology

This quiz is for my basic Psychology class and is probably fraught with numerous spelling issues but I needed to make it for tomorrow so it's no big deal but it is a necessary evil as they say

If you really want to take a psychology test that will challenge anyone at the age of 7 then go ahead but I really don't care about this one. So take it or don't it doesn�t matter to me
